Guatemala is full of rich history and culture that adults will find astounding, but what about the kids? We spent a day walking the streets with our little Princess, but here are all the things she wished she could have done that day.

Central America is not known for it’s fine cuisine. You can’t go to a “Guatemalan” restaurant in Australia or anywhere else I know for that matter except in Guatemala. We really struggled with decent places to eat in Antigua. So the gems we did find I t…

Leaving Guatemala, flying to Fort Lauderdale - staying the night - before flying to Puerto Rico. Everyone loves the flight stories, right?
May 11, 2013 Lake Atitlan, Guatemala
Our last day in Panajachel we hired a boat & captain to take us to two of the towns located around the majestic and beautiful Lake Atitlán, which on this day was not happy to have us on its silky waters.

We meet Roberto in Central Park where he immediately enchanted us with his knowledge and talking skill offering us a guided tour. Come visit 4 off the beaten locations that only a local can take you too.

Would you travel 6 hours to see Central America’s largest waterpark? A secret hidden from the colossal amount of tourists and backpackers flocking to Guatemala? A local hotspot so fantastic and wonderful and cheap you can count the number of Caucasians in…

A date with our daughter in Antigua, where the bright coloured walls make a perfect backdrop for some simply stunning photos. See Antigua through our 4 year old daughters eyes & her father's camera lens.

I stood in the ruins looking through the circular gape or a ceiling watching the clouds roll by. Blue sky littered with floating white clouds passing above it like a framed moving picture. It was so beautiful I wanted to capture the moment and I did, brie…

So what’s an English speaking Australian doing in Antigua, Guatemala? That is a great question! I know no Spanish, I know nothing about Guatemala, except one thing, the biggest Easter celebration in the world is set in the colonial streets of a small town…

It was bound to happen. 11 months with no theft or anything, we were surprised. No use for our Travel insurance. But then it happened. The violated feeling, the disappointment, the hassle. Pickpocketed in the one place we were told it would happen. Take…

We had such delicious fun it wasn’t right not to include the kids. Picture a 2 & 4 year old making chocolate, “one for the mold, one for me, one for the mold, two for me, one for the mold…” You get the idea.

Quite rightfully this is the number 2 thing to do in Antigua on TripAdvisor. Two hours went way too fast and I was literally giddy with glee the whole time. I washed my hands consistently (as I’m a finger licker)... Before I knew it we were done and the f…

What a journey. And what a change from our hellish ride from Belize to Guatemala. The overnight bus went fast and was a very cheap alternative to getting into Antigua.

Tikal is huge! Our tour was about 5 hours long and over 6km. That’s a lot of walking with a 2 & 4 year old who got up at 4am. The morning started with the quickest (and rare) glimpse of a Jaguar on its way home from a late night party obviously. We also s…

The plan was simple. A 1.5 hour speedboat ride from San Pedro to Belize City at 10am. This would get us to Belize City about 11:30am/12pm with enough time to eat lunch and catch the 1pm bus to Flores, Guatemala. What could go wrong?

On our way to Antigua we stopped in Flores to check out Tikal for a few days. Then we spent one month in this beautiful colonial town including the famous Semena Santa
